Natibaby Plum Clovers (Wool Blend)



Brand Name: Natibaby
Wrap Name: Clovers

Reviewed by: Melissa Augustine
Size of Wrap: 6
Fabric Content: 30% wool



How long has this wrap been used by you? 
1 week 
What size is the wrapee (ex: age, height & lbs): 
my primary wrapee is 13 months and 21 pounds

What is the thickness of this wrap (ex: thin, Med, Thick): 
I would consider this wrap medium thin
Did/Does it have cush:(The Definition of Cush varies but could be described as marshmellowyness, soft, moldable, comfortable, ability to adapt to your body) 
I would say this wrap has slight cush but given it’s dense weave it lays flatter on my shoulders than a typical cushy wrap. 
How did it feel on your shoulders:
Soft and easy on the shoulders.  No digging and no hardness.
How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have (ex: none- ace bandage like):
This wrap doesn’t have quite as much give as some of the other wool blends I have used however it still has a good amount of stretch giving it awesome moldability
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
In a FWCC without the passes spread it was very comfortable and supportive.  I didn’t feel the need to spread the passes at all.  I did not use it in a single layer back carry.
How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry? 
I found it very supportive for a multilayer back carry.
Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to (ex: babies, toddlers, New Babywearers, Advanced Babywearers): 
This wrap would easily last you from newborn through toddlerhood.  It would be a good option in terms of wrapping qualities for beginners.  It is soft, moldable, easy to manipulate, passes slide into place easily and stay put. It also has teaching rails which allow a new wrapper to easily tell which rail is which.  Although wool is not something I typically recommend to new wrappers since it requires a little more care and attention than other blends it is certainly nothing to be afraid of or looked over simply for being slightly higher maintenance. This wrap arrived to me BNIB and it was soft right out of the box.  There was not a prickle to be felt! I would not have known it was wool without being told.
Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
I would absolutely recommend this wrap.  In addition to the great wrapping qualities it is beautiful.  The purple and green work together so well and in such a fun way.  The purple is a nice bright purple and the green is just a hint of green that can easily be mistaken for grey in some light. The “right” side shows the all purple background with green clovers which have a nice shimmer when the purple and green mix together.  The “wrong” side I think is what makes this wrap really special though.  The way the clovers shimmer on the “right” side is really enhanced when it becomes the background for the “wrong” side and it has a fun iridescent look to it. 
Please tell us a little more about yourself (ex: how long have you been wearing, how many different wraps have you tried, what is your babywearing background):  
I have 3 children ages 4, 2 and 13 months.  I have worn each of them since they were born in various carrier types and have been primarily wrapping for the past 3 years. I currently serve as an ABE and Board Secretary for Babywearing International of North Central IL.

How to fix a broken thread in your woven wrap:

How to fix a pull in a woven wrap
     If you are just joining us. Welcome!!! Welcome to the best blog you will ever read, (hehe). We are currently doing a blog series called "How to care and fix that woven wrap of yours".  The first post was an introduction and gave you the run down on how to care for your woven wrap. From washing to ironing.
     Our second post in this series was focused on "How to fix Thread Shifting" in a woven wrap. In that post I walked you thru both in photos and text how to treat and fix thread shifting. 
     Today we are going to focus on how to fix a pull in a woven wrap. A pull in a woven wrap is very common and to be honest so common it would be rare for someone not to have ever had one or get one during their babywearing journey. Pulls can very easily happen, anything from a broken nail to just taking it out of the package and it catching on just the right thing. Fixing a pull is a very tedious task and we are setting upon this jou…

How to Fix Thread Shifting in a Woven Wrap


     Thread shifting is where an area of the thread "shifts". This can make a weak spot in the wrap or can create a gap. Thread shifting is very common in thinner wraps or wraps that have a loose weave. And it can also be done by holding your wrap too hard while wrapping or tugging on your wrap. Thread shifting is fixable.
The following picture shows thread shifting in a woven wrap.




1) Take a sewing needle and use it to gently slide the threads straight back in their correct lines, gently pulling diagonally to edge them back in straight.  You will follow the line pattern of the rest of the wrap and will be able to tell when they are in their correct spot.




This is what it should look like when done. You will want to get those threads as close to each other as you can:




2) Follow up with a warm wash. This will tighten the fibers of the thread back up.

3) Tumble dry (if blend allows)if not then please skip this.
4) Iron
